In a small bowl, toss avocado chunks with one tablespoon of lemon juice. Combine remaining lemon juice and Lemon Olive Oil in small bowl and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise with Gorgonzola crumbles and stir. Whisk in half and half, Red Barrel Aged Wine Vinegar, mustard and reserved bacon fat. Season with salt and a pepper. Arrange lettuce leaves on a large platter. In a large bowl, toss together turkey, cheddar, eggs, tomatoes, and scallions. Gently fold in avocado.
